Weird... monitor?... issue
I'm getting these uniformly spaced thin black/"oily" vertical lines. They don't show up all the time, it can be temporarily fixed by unplugging the DVI cable/plugging it back in or turning the monitor on and off.
Examples (I apologize for the crappy images, I had to use my phone's camera)...
It doesn't seem to show up in screenshots?
They seem to have just started recently; I've seen them in The Sims 3, SimCity, and Tomb Raider. Not just in games, either - they like to show up in the medium blues of my desktop background (which is where the oily sheen comes in). It also shows up in the tab bar of chrome, the header bar of the PA forums... and sometimes I can make it go away just by refreshing the screen with a different image.
What the hell? It doesn't seem
like a video card (EVGA GTX 570, purchased 10/13/2011) issue, but this monitor (Dell UltraSharp U2412M 24") is like a month old. Could it be the cable? Should I pick up a display port cable from somewhere?
(apologies if this was better posted in H&A)
